IBM Public Cloud - IaaS/PaaS

Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) is a cloud-computing offering in which a vendor provides users access to computing resources such as servers, storage and networking. Organizations use their own platforms and applications within a service provider’s infrastructure.

Key featuresGraphic representing infrastructure as a service

  • Instead of purchasing hardware outright, users pay for IaaS on demand.

  • Infrastructure is scalable depending on processing and storage needs.

  • Saves enterprises the costs of buying and maintaining their own hardware.

  • Because data is on the cloud, there can be no single point of failure.

  • Enables the virtualization of administrative tasks, freeing up time for other work.

Platform as a service (PaaS) is a cloud computing offering that provides users with a cloud environment in which they can develop, manage and deliver applications. In addition to storage and other computing resources, users are able to use a suite of prebuilt tools to develop, customize and test their own applications.

  • PaaS provides a platform with tools to test, develop and host applications in the same environment.

  • Enables organizations to focus on development without having to worry about underlying infrastructure.

  • Providers manage security, operating systems, server software and backups.

  • Facilitates collaborative work even if teams work remotely.
